The Pippa Bag With A Side Of Pappagallo Espadrilles Updates

My ‘Pippa’ bag arrived.

The bag was formerly called the Bristol Bag by Modalu of London but as soon as Pippa Middleton was seen the day after the wedding carrying it out of the Goring hotel it was quickly renamed.

They are sold out on the Modalu website but they are taking pre-orders for a new batch.

Must have been a rough passage.

It can be seen in Spain this weekend. “Hola, mi amiga”!

It certainly is making the rounds.
I wish mine could be seen with a hunky… uh, never mind.

… an espadrille update, and this is rather embarrassing, but I found a link to them on my own blog! The link I provided in my last post took you to a post I had written in 2009.

Let us former Pappagallo espadrille lovers rejoice!!

I close with one more reference to Spain where the rain stays mainly on the plain…

… and in the OC today where it is currently pouring.
I washed my windows yesterday.
This is clearly my fault. I do apologize.

Have a wonderful week ahead! 🙂

I’m still working on the wedding cookies and haven’t even begun the cookies for the trade show (I can’t wait to share some presentation ideas with you) but I thought you’d deserve a new post! Apparently blue curacao is the ‘color of the week’ and I’m drinking it in.I love the color almost as much as I love the intense-hued sweet, orange-flavored libation. Here’s the link to all the goodies featured in the photo. My eye was instantly drawn to… [Read More]
